Just curious at finding out how accurate the Chinese Conception chart actualy is. The chinese chart predicts if your child will be a boy or girl according to your lunar age and baby's lunar month of conception. It was right 3 out of 4 pregnancies for me. How about you?

Go to www.chinagold.com enter your birthday, baby's birthday and gestation time (40 weeks is 266 days so add or substract days if you were early or late). Was the chart right?

Not even close. I have a boy and he was conceived Memorial Day weekend 1999 which means between the 29th and the 30th of May, not June 7 as the site stated.

Okay, up to now it seems that we have:

13 chart was right
10 chart was wrong

not too impressive up to now.

The chart claims to be right 65% of the time.

Anyone else?

Mine was correct. It stated I was to have a boy and I did! BUT I really need to have a baby girl next time. I'm wondering if I should follow this calendar for next time.

Well, I couldn't do DS#1 because it said there was an error with my age (I was 16 when he was born).

BUT...it was RIGHT for all of the other 4, and says this next one is a girl (what I'm thinking), so we'll see!!

With the 47 answers we have up to now:

29 chart was right (62%)
18 chart was wrong (38%)

62% right is pretty good
